Y&R Recap Written By Glynis  **One Day Ahead

Gloria brings John home from the hospital. Mrs. Martinez is there to greet them. She is so glad that John is okay. Mrs. Martinez sees the bag with John’s old clothes from the hospital. She offers to take them and wash them right away. Gloria remembers how Ashley told of there being no gun residue found to link her to the shooting directly. That gives her an idea. “Mrs. Martinez! Could you take those clothes to the cleaners and not was them yourself please? And take John’s overcoat that he had been wearing the night of the accident as well.” John sees no need for all that but Gloria insists and so Mrs. Martinez heads out as instructed with the evidence. John can’t sit still or keep his mind from churning. “Did you know that the Sheila person used to work at the hospital? I overheard the nurses talking about her. They also said that she had an accomplice. Do you know who that person was?" Gloria tells him that Tom was working with Sheila. John should of guessed. “I can’t understand where Ashley would get a gun if she did in fact do this shooting," John says. Suddenly his face changes. He rushes to the drawer where the gun that he owns is kept. He finds it empty. “The gun is gone! Is that the gun that Ashley used to shoot Tom?" JT and Mackenzie are at the coffeehouse together when Jill drops in. She would like to talk to Mackenzie alone for a minute, but Mackenzie tells her that JT can hear whatever it is. Jill presents Mackenzie with a letter. “It is from Billy in Venice.” Phyllis is pissed. She confronts Jack about this consultation with the lawyer about her project with Nikki. “So let me get this straight! If I hadn’t accepted your job proposal, you would have used this lawyer to prevent us from operating as a company. Is that right? You just keep trying to control me Jack!" Nikki is trying to handle the meeting over in the Jabot boardroom alone. She tries their best but the executives really want to meet with the other partner as well. Nikki says that this idea is hers in fact and that she can answer all their questions. The door then flies open and Phyllis walks in jabbering at a hundred miles a minute. “I am sorry that I am late. I had to make a stop of the printers to run off this presentation material for you all to look at.” She hands the booklets that she has put together out for the guests and she smiles worriedly over their heads at Nikki. They are great! The guests love the energy and ideas that Phyllis and Nikki put out to them. After they leave, Nikki demands an explanation. Phyllis tells her to drop it. “Don’t worry about it Nikki. It was all a fraud!" Out in the hall, a ruckus can be heard. “What the hell is going on around here?" The door opens and a very red-faced Jack enters. “What is this about? Oh so I see that you were having a meeting. Did it have anything to do with Jabot? Do you two realize that you are employees?" Nikki reminds him that she is a shareholder in the company and that she can do whatever she wants in the Jabot boardroom. Jack knows that she is right about that. “Okay, but you Phyllis! You are an employee! You have crossed your boundaries and if you are not careful, your job is going to be in big trouble.” She ignores him as she gets her papers together. “My job isn’t going to be in trouble. I quit!" She walks out. Nikki smiles raising her eyebrows, then she walks out behind Phyllis. Ashley is with Michael having a meeting in the DA’s office. She listens quietly as Michael tries to convince Glen that he has nothing to go on here. “The lab found no gun residue, lots of people pick up weapons after they have been used, and juries watch CSI. This is a waste of the taxpayers’ money.” Glen sees where Michael is going with this but he has some things in place that compel him to keep trying to convict. “We checked out the gun. It belonged to Paul, who gave it to John Abbot who then registered it. That is where the problem lies. The gun was in Ashley’s house, she had access to it and she is found with a dead man who has just been shot with it.” Ashley sees where this is going. “I did it!" She says. “I confess.” Michael turns to her in horror. “What are you doing?" Glen tries to get Ashley to put her confession in writing but Michael will not allow that. Later Ashley says that she had to confess as that is the truth. Michael will not accept that. “You didn’t even give me a chance to do my job Ashley.” She had to do this that way, she says. When she gets home, Gloria is waiting for her and she gets the bad news about how things went at the DA’s office. “I had to confess Gloria. The way that things are lined up now with the investigation, they are convinced that someone that lives in this house did the shooting. We can’t let dad hear anything about this gun and its connection to this case.” Gloria’s eyes grow big. “Oh no!" She tells that the drawer had apparently always been locked when the gun was in the house. “John will realize that he was the one that opened the drawer if he learns all about this. The person with the key is the one that did the shooting and John will figure that out!" Ashley demands that Gloria tell where that key is now!
